Are IQ tests really accurate?
Posted 3/29/08
Real IQ tests [by professional] don't exactly measure your intelligence, they measure your thinking style. The IQ number represents the progress you should've made in that thinking style at the age you are. Online IQ tests are completely false and their curved. Depending on the questions, someone with a real IQ of about 110 can take the test 3 times and get 103, 115, and 123. Add 10 points to that and you get 113, 125, and 133. And that also explains why most [the average of the people] people get "above average" IQ scores. Which is, of course, completely illogical. In theory, IQ tests should work for their original purpose but the internet , like it has with many thngs, completely distorted it in a way to get cheap money for doing nothing. They actually try to make you pay for a piece of paper that bullshits you into thinking you're a genius. Most of you are average. And for every genius, there's a below average person.

im not completely sure if they are, nor do i actually trust the output from them, however if it's true that you actually have a low IQ its just by opinion of others, so not much to be said there.

I don't know about IQ tests because people around me never talk about it. I've never seen/taken one either
Does an IQ test only test your analytical skills? Or does it also check on your creative and practical abilities?

I'm guessing that the results aren't true, becaus aren't IQ tests given in a "test" format? And some people aren't good at taking tests and managing time.. which doesn't really prove intelligence.

I've taken a few online ones before. I get tired after a few questions and just anyhow answer the rest. I usually go with my gut feeling and get a score of 120. (which makes my gut feeling pretty good right?) I think online IQ sites make your IQ level higher so they can get you to buy the full report. Which I think, if you do buy, thats makes you an idiot.

IQ test is a scam. To make money out of stupid people.

I would say, just forget about IQ. It isn't worth worrying about. Just do stuff.

They seriously can't be accurate...I've taken many tests and they've all ranged from 110 - 134.

"Intelligence" is subjective anyways, so how can an iq test be "accurate"? What will high or low intelligence enable/disable you to do and why is that intelligence? Is intelligence is almost a philosophical question, or a label, there can be no accurate test. For instance: is intelligence bound to correct or any conclusion, analysis, or understanding et cetera, and in what order should these be sorted, or are they all just as important?
I took a non-profit iq test, and got 99, the normal is 100 or rather 70-130. If you got a good iq test, it may not be good in determining the level of intelligence between people in this median, but iq tests should be rather good in determining the extreme, like 180 or 30. But between a guy with 118 and one with 120, there is no reason to say the one with 120 won.
